RAW VEGAN BROWNIES WITH AVOCADO FROSTING

Recipeveronique daoust

These brownies are one of our most demanded recipes. They are so gooey and decadent, yet surprisingly very healthy. All you need is a food processor or a good blender and you're good to go. You will shock everyone with how healthy these are, and likely will not have any leftovers :).

INGREDIENTS

  • 3/4 Cups Walnuts, raw & unsalted
  • 3/4 Cups Pecans, raw & unsalted
  • 1 1/2 Cups Medjool Dates (soaked in warm water for 20 minutes to soften)
  • 1/3 Cup Raw Cacao Powder (We like the brand by Giddy Yo Yo)
  • 1 Tsp Natural Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Tsp Virgin Coconut Oil, melted
  • Pinch of Himalayan Pink Salt (sea salt works too)

FROSTING

  • 1 Small Avocado (make sure it is ripe)
  • 1/4 Cup Raw Cacao Powder
  • 4 TBSP Pure Maple Syrup
  • 1/4 Tsp Natural Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Tsp Virgin Coconut Oil, melted
  • Pinch of Himalayan Pink Salt (sea salt works too)

DIRECTIONS

Place all brownie ingredients in a food processor or high powered blender and pulse until it comes together into a dough. Dough will be sticky and smooth. 

Line an 8" baking pan or loaf tin with parchment paper and place the brownie dough in the pan. Press down using a spatula or your hands (I find hands work better) to even out the dough and smooth out the top.

Place in the fridge to set while you prepare the frosting

To make frosting, place all frosting ingredients except for the coconut oil in a blender and blend until smooth. Then slowly add the coconut oil and blend again.

Take the brownie dough out of the fridge and spread the frosting evenly over the top using a spatula.

Place in fridge or freezer to set for an hour. Once set, you can take out and slices the brownies.

Brownies keep well in the fridge for a week or in the freezer for 2 months.

Enjoy!
